Great place which has to be a part of your tourist route. The waterfall is located in the Ukrainian Carpathians, the Gorgany mountain range, a picturesque, beautiful place. In summer, its waters allow you to refresh, cheer up and recharge your batteries. The waterfall looks very beautiful in winter, when water currents freeze on a steep cliff, creating amazing ice growths. A feature of Dzvinka is its location, relatively difficult approach, lack of good roads within a radius of 3-4 kilometers.
Description of Dzvinka waterfall
It was formed on a small stream, a right tributary of the river Bukhtivets, where the stream crosses the cliff and has a height of about 5.7 meters, 669 meters above sea level. The waterfall is especially beautiful during heavy rains, as well as during snow melting. In times of drought, it is not so beautiful, but does not dry out completely and is able to leave a pleasant impression. Interestingly, near Dzvinka there is another small sign of the waterfall, which has no name and a height of not more than 6 meters.
Of particular note is that the road to the waterfall is not known to every local, and there is no talk about the crowds of tourists. It is very rare to meet a traveler here. The reason is very simple - poor accessibility, lack of roads. This fact makes the natural monument even more attractive to visit. It is desirable to plan a trip to the waterfall with an experienced guide, which will make the holiday interesting and completely safe.
